Wine can cause the biggest problem in electric devices.Even water much better.There is not much you can do in this case.Acids and vinegar in the wine can melt up everything inside a laptop.

Non functioning keys due to spilled wine on Acer Aspire 7520-5311


It's most likely done , shut down, remove battery, remove keyboard , try to clean. Replace if necessary. Rarely does liquid of any type do electronics any good.

Place your laptop in the sun light for 3 or 4 hour ,and again start the laptop .Also you will remove the battery and the dc adapter .press the on of switch for 30 seconds.AGAIN INSTALL THE BATTERY AND THE ADAPTER .I THINK IT SOLVE YOUR PROBLEM.

Spilled wine now cant get camera off movie mode


Turn camera off! Take out battery!
Now, with NO Electrical contact or power in it, try to clean wine residue away from any moving parts with clean water and try drying unit slowly in front of a heater or hair dryer. If available, put a small amount of WD-40 in the same areas, making sure to wipe away any drainage or excess. Allow to dry overnight in warm area, pehaps by heater, but don't let it get too hot. Reinstall battery and turn it on.
It should work find now. Good Luck!

Very short freezes constantly


There was more damage than just the keyboard, your fault appears intermitten and possibly some connectors and sockets are not making good electrical contact. You need to dismantle the laptop completely to inspect and clean what ever you can with distilled water and let it dry throughly. It still may not work because there may be some electrical damage to some chips and components, especially if the laptop was running at the time of the wine spill.

There is not much help I can offer you except to advise you to buy another laptop, and if the hard drive in the old laptop is OK then buy a USB hard drive case and insert the laptop hard drive in this case and use it as an external USB hard drive. You need to delete all the old system files etc. to maxmise the hard disk space.
